UNC ($$) vs Texas ($) for post-MBA IB in NYC, SF, Boston, or LA

Would appreciate feedback from the WSO cohort here. In at UNC Kenan-Flagler and Texas McCombs. UNC gave me a decent chunk of change, and Texas threw me a little bone as well (roughly 1/3 of UNC).

Both great schools, think I'd be happy living/going to both, same "tier" overall I'd say. Looking for feedback specifically as it pertains to my goals.

Objective post-MBA is IB associate in BB/EB, target cities are NYC, SF, Boston or LA.

From what I understand, Texas places primarily in Houston energy groups and UNC does a little better in NYC. Don't really have an interest in energy banking so my hunch is that UNC is the better play. Curious to hear thoughts

Thanks in advance

I'd go with UNC here. They have a little bit more of a "national" brand than UT does. I think if you want to be anywhere in Texas, UT is the better choice. Barring that, I'd say UNC.

I really think the tier is same, regional leaders, and nothing much more like a national brand ok.

I would also think the ib stuff is easier at Texas and harder @ UNC... UNC isnt at New York is all, but having Duke helps recruiters to get both in one trip maybe.
